Synopsis

This documentary explores the folk horror phenomenon from its beginnings in three foundational films – Michael Reeves’ “Witchfinder General” (1968), Piers Haggard’s “Blood on Satan’s Claw” (1971) and Robin Hardy’s “The Wicker Man” (1973) – through its proliferation on British television in the 1970s and its culturally specific manifestations in American, Asian, Australian and European horror, to the genre’s revival over the last decade. Touching on over 100 titles and featuring over 50 interviewees, the film investigates the many ways by which we alternately celebrate, conceal and manipulate our own histories in an attempt to find spiritual resonance in our surroundings.
